Mould is a type of fungus that exists all around us in nature. When mould spores land on damp surfaces, they start spreading and growing on them. Mould plays an integral role in breaking down organic matter. While preventing mould completely can be impossible, the only way to control it is to control the moisture in the region. Mold can only grow in damp places, so keeping your property dry can help stop any outbreaks.
Mould can be found in your home if you have a damp area. Kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, where mould often persists because these areas are consistently moist and these are mould's ideal places. Materials such as drywall, wooden panelling, ceiling tiles, mattresses and much more can have mould growing on them.
